Thanks guys... didnt mean to hijack.

JR, if you really want a guzzling beast like a Suburban, I hope you have deep enough pockets to afford the gas.  We have a truck here at the house and its horrible.  Its sat in the driveway for the past month, only being driven once or twice every two weeks.  Taking 80-90 a fill-up is just insane.

Just dont get it for the wrong reasons... "I want to sit up high"  which imo, is lame.  GL on your hunting though.  Im waiting to see what you end up with.

Dood...you misunderstood me. When I was growing up, the Suburban's we had were great. But there's no way in Halifax I'm getting a Suburban! Hell no!
We know what were getting, we're just sitting back for the right deal/time. probably this spring at some point.
And no worries about an hijacking. I like it. I'm not one of those people  :wink:

hey, I am already driving the modern brady mobile.  Remember Elmo at the track?  Sad.  

yeah, a new car is a ways off, but It must happen sooner or later.

So JR, if you know what you are getting stop teasing us and let us know.

On the truck based suv front.  I did have an LR3 as a rental vehicle in Chicago last week.  MUCH better than the Disco it replaced, but still has some messed up egronomics.   That said, It drove really nicely and it was HUGE.  tons of room inside.  that and the 3 sunroofs was a nice touch for the people in the back.  I would actually consider one of those too.

LR3's are definitely a beefy ride, but the back reminds me of a UPS truck.

My buddy just picked up a 05 Xterra. (he paid about $24,500)

The body actually rides on the full size Titan hydroformed frame... (although the back half is modified a bit)  It is REALLY solid feeling and with its 4.0L version of the Maxima's 6 (265hp/285lb) definitely has balls.

I like it a lot, but I just couldn't drive an SUV everyday and be truly happy...

Steve,

The GLI is looking great.  I really like those a lot too.  I sat in one and chatted it up with a guy showing it at a fair here this fall.  

JR, now if you are wanting an SUV, you might as well do it right...



Nothing like 13 MPG to make your heart go pitter patter...



Man I love your FJ60!  I think I am going to have to get one.  I miss my Jeep and an FJ60 would be an awesome replacement.  I been looking at FJ60 for sale ads this morning.

Andrew, I think we had a brief post about the new supercharged LR3 that starts at $75K?? That'd be a cool car...though.

I'm not going to say what we're getting until we actually GET it. Believe me, it's hard enough for both of us to wait as it is. But wait we must.
